About this app

Bluebikes is metro-Boston’s public bike share system. With over 2,500 bikes available 24/7 at more than 260 stations throughout Boston, Brookline, Everett, Cambridge and Somerville, Bluebikes is one of the most popular bike shares in the country.

With the app, find your closest station and purchase a pass. Then unlock one of Bluebikes' specially designed, safe, sturdy, easy to ride bikes, and get riding right away. When you’re done riding, simply return the bike to an available dock at any station in the network. The app will show you all station locations, with real-time dock and dock availability, and you can save your favorites for later reference. Tap a station pin or location and the app will show you the best route to get there.

Ideal for one-way trips, commutes to work or school, running errands, meeting friends for dinner, going to a game, or just cruising around metro-Boston to see the sights. All trips under 30 minutes are included (the app will track your time for you). Take as many rides as you want during the term of your pass.

Enjoy the ride!

Every city in the country should replicate the BlueBikes program. The abundance of stations, bikes, and app tracking (plus Angel points program) is unprecedented. It's great to be back visiting Boston and seeing tons of positive change. We felt totally comfortable navigating every corner of the city. Cheers!

This app is good but it could be better. For me it doesn't snap exactly to my location upon startup and I find it a bit slow to calculate a route for you. It's hard for people who are red green color blind to use, and the docks switch colors when you are out on a bike so that green becomes empty rather than full. It might be better to simplify to a single blue bar denoting how many bikes are at a dock. Overall a great service and I'm glad to see the city adopting more bike friendly practices.

Astounded. -- Locate nearby bike stations. -- Easily locate other stations along the way to avoid additional charges. -- Plan out your trip. -- It does have the same shortcoming as Google Maps, though. Namely, detailed directions that take you completely out of the way. --- Just stick to the map and you'll be fine.
